A Morrison & Foerster team led by Jennifer Lee Taylor, Jamie A. Levitt, Sabrina Larson, and Madeleine E. Gully secured a preliminary injunction on behalf of The Museum of Modern Art in its trademark suit against MoMaCha café. Read more about the suit in the Law360 article “MoMA Wins Bid To Block Manhattan Cafe's Use Of Marks.

“We think it’s a terrific decision,” said Ms. Taylor. “I was impressed with how much work the judge did in really digging in to understand all of the facts in the case. We’re happy the court recognized the strength of the MoMA mark and that there was a need to stop the confusion in the marketplace. The length of the order and number of facts cited in the order make it clear why he made his decision that the museum had a strong case for a preliminary injunction.”
